Hey, Mozilla, what exactly does your tracker protection do if uBlock Origin, loaded up with the @better block rules finds 36 trackers to block even though your tracker protection is on?

(For extra irony, note the domain of the site being visited. *smh*)

@aral @better With a little digging I managed to retrieve their lists.

Blocked list

Unblocked list

Interestingly, some of the sites in the picture like and are in the blocking list.

Is it possible that uBlock Origin is being triggered before the browser's built-in blocking is triggered?

Maybe a better test is to monitor the network tab with Tracking Protection turned on and uBlock Origin disabled.

@njoseph @aral @better Thanks, that's very useful. Would be interesting to compare the lists & also carry out the analysis you suggested.
